This spaghetti with fresh tomatoes and basil tastes every bit as good as it looks. But what would possess someone to order spaghetti in a pizzeria?

Counter Culture visited Saraghina three times, and had three great meals there. The serpentine dining rooms are memorable, the back yard beguiling--you should hang in it sometime before the rainy season arrives. There are probably a half-dozen Naples-revival pies in Brooklyn that can match those served at Saraghina (Roberta's, Franny's, and Motorino come immediately to mind), but the shifting appetizer list--emphasizing stuff from Emilia-Romagna--makes the place uniquely desirable. Here are pictures of some dishes my pals and I dug.
